About Jim Perkins
Jim Perkins began playing guitar and writing songs in college and that's when the music bug bit him. He was consumed by an overwhelming yearning to perform, no matter how large or small the crowd, from friends to complete strangers.

His singing and songwriting is some of the best in acoustic music today. He easily and gracefully moves from Alternate Country to Americana to Singer Songwriter to Blues without missing a beat. His lyrics are heartfelt, moving and honest; authentic tales of everyday life that can’t be expressed in any other way. Many have compared his songs and show style to popular artists such as Ed Sheeran, Ray LaMontagne, Edwin McCain, Ryan Adams, Marc Broussard, Emerson Hart (of Tonic), and Dave Matthews.

Jim's performances are positive and fun. With great stage manner and intimate interactions with the audience, Jim knows what to say, catering to his broad range of listeners. He's quick on the draw and has witty humor. Jim’s ability to leave his captive audiences wanting more is second to none.
